You tell me that nobody wants you
You tell me that nobody loves your face
What a shame

And anyone that ever had you forgot you
And the one you're with just doesn't understand

It's so hard for me to speak right now
I'm trying so hard to keep my cool
There's so much I should say right now
That you need to know

I wish you could see that
You're so amazing and when I'm next to you my world's alive
You make my world alive

And I'm not one to complain
And I don't want this to end
But why am I always the friend?

You tell me about the ones that had you
And oh I wish so bad that they were me
I wish you could see

And if I had you I would never forget you
I would keep you close and help you to believe

It's so hard for me to speak right now
I'm trying so hard to keep my cool
There's so much I should say right now
That you need to know

I wish you could see that
You're so amazing and when I'm next to you my world's alive
You make my world alive

And I'm not one to complain
And I don't want this to end
But why am I always the friend?

(oh I love you)
The way you smile, the way you love, the way you hug me
(oh i need you)
The way you talk, the way you cook, and when you call me
(oh i love you)
The way you cry, the way you laugh, the way you believe
The way you do that thing you do, the way you love me

    Song MeaningFrom what this song says, I think its about him having a close female friend who he really loves, but she doesn't love him the way that he does to her, which makes him sad.

    "And I'm not one to complain
    And I don't want this to end
    But why am I always the friend?"

    He wonders why is he just a friend to her. Why not something even more?

    "You tell me about the ones that had you
    And oh I wish so bad that they were me
    I wish you could see"

    She tells him about his previous ex boyfriends. He wishes he can be her boyfriend.
